obama signed it into law in july. and back in june, i don't think that anybody was expecting that we would actually see this bill come to fruition. but within a couple of weeks following the bill was on the president's desk for signature. the primary issue to point out with map 21, is that it is a two-year bill and it does not fundamentally change federal transportation policy. you can see from the picture on the slide in the corner, that it is illustrative of the politics of the bill. this is president obama at the signing of the bill and you see representatives of teachers unions and the u.s. department of education is also in this picture and arny duncan because it included provisions on college loan interest rates and also representatives of the industry along with la mayor, since the tifia expansion and a $500 million boost to projects of natural significance with something that la lobbied for heavily to boost the program that will implement 30 years of transit projects within ten years using low-cost federal loans which we will talk about in a few slides about the tivia program

was september 11, and president obama asked for all flags to be lowered to honor everyone who was killed on 9/11. my friend bill wilson and i asked the political leaders of the castro to use the public property at harvey milk plaza, including the rainbow flag, to lower the rainbow flag, to first of all respect president obama's proclamation, and, second, to remember and honor a gay hero named mark bingham who lost his life in the fields of pennsylvania. for two years, gay activists have asked, demanded, and pleaded for public property at harvey milk plaza to simply lower a flag on occasion, especially when our president asks to do it. and when gay people say we want to honor mark bingham, we want petty vindictive political leadership in the castro to grow up. we want a public discussion about public property. because mark bingham would have had the flag lowered at harvey milk plaza, had harvey milk been alive. we simply want to lower a flag on city property. and after two years, we don't have that right. something must be done. >> president chiu: thank you. next speaker. >> good afternoon. my
